Empowering the anywhere business requires managing infrastructure anywhere

Gartner IT IOCS Conference, December 6-8, 2022

After three years, Gartner’s IT Infrastructure, Operations, and Cloud Strategies (IOCS) conference is returning this December as an in-person event!  Platform9 sponsored the event back in 2019 and is returning as a silver sponsor this year in Las Vegas from December 6 to December 8. We can’t wait to meet this fantastic group of infrastructure and operations leaders and hope to see you next month at our booth.

The Garter IOCS conference is in its incredible 41st year in Las Vegas. Over the years, this conference has given thousands of Infrastructure and Operations (I&O) professionals crucial insights, best practices, and guidance  as they’ve navigated the most pressing and relevant challenges in their organizations.

The theme of this year’s conference is “Empowering the anywhere business” – and the topic couldn’t be more relevant for the attendees.

Businesses across the world are challenged to deliver value and innovation to their customers and teams, no matter where they are. I&O leaders, in turn, need to create and run more dispersed, resilient, responsive, and scalable platforms and systems.

In essence, they are confronted with the task of building and operating distributed infrastructure anywhere: on-premises, colocation, public clouds, and so on.

The conundrum of cloud and infrastructure anywhere

To address the infrastructure challenge anywhere, I&O leaders have two options:

  • Public cloud
    • is costly and limited. Hyper-scalers confine you to their infrastructure and their platform services. Furthermore, they are not easy to operate at scale.
  • Internal cloud platform and self-management
    • provides the benefits of cloud on your own infrastructure, but is difficult to build and manage. It takes talent and time, which you don’t have.

Enterprises frequently wind up with “islands of infrastructure” controlled by fragmented teams and resource redundancy, resulting in cost overruns, a lack of consistency and governance, and a failure to meet business objectives.
